[Mailman-Users] Subscription Reply bug in beta6`

I have noticed that when a user subscribes to the list - they get an email,
if they simply reply to the email, it goes to the list at domain.com instead of
list-request at domain.com.  It works OK, as long as you are processing email
and looking for administrative requests - but if you turn that option off -
it quits working.

While I am at it.  I also found a bug that if you create a new list, the
list.mbox file is empty. That should be OK, but it causes the following

Oct 05 13:06:01 2000 (474) Archive file access failure:
        /usr/local/mailman/archives/private/homebrew.mbox/homebrew.mbox (0,

  File "/usr/local/mailman/Mailman/Mailbox.py", line 41, in AppendMessage
    self.fp.seek(-1, 2)
IOError: (0, 'Error')

I simply add a space to the file and then the list processes as normal.
